at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton administration to prove the need for a ban on so-called assault weapons." this was a member of congress arguing that the deaths at waco were premeditated by the government as a way to persuade the rest of the country to support gun control. he was saying the government made this up, they did this on purpose, they ginned this up for political reasons, it was planned. ruby ridge had been a cause celebre for folks like that already that year. waco was a further cause celebre for the same group of people. and on the anniversary of waco, on the two-year anniversary of waco, on april 19th, 1995, a militia member named timothy mcveigh cited ruby ridge and waco as his inspiration for bombing the federal building in oklahoma city. timothy mcveigh was trying to kill as many federal employees as possible when he bombed that building. he specifically chose the murrah
in the eyes of god and also in our own. >>. >> joining me now, steve kornacki and krystal ball, co-hosts of "the cycle" here on msnbc. thanks for joining me. >> thank you for having us. >> the man once talked about ending the partisan divide accepted that republicans in washington seem to respond better to power politics, it seems. >> there are some things you cannot change. and i think that's one of the things that we learned is in the first four years republicans decided their only goal really was to obstruct and oppose him. and if you don't have a willing partner on the other side of a negotiating table, it doesn't matter how many olive branches you extend. if there's not a hand willing to reach back, then it's not going to be helpful. nothing good is going to come out of it. and i think he also realized the power of taking the case to the american people. you know, this speech was boldly progressive. it outlined a progressive vision for the country. when you think of the individual elements eluding to immigration reform, voting rights. lbgt equality. all of these things individ
it. so we've soeen it before. >> and i agree with steve on that, he has the audacity to disagree with me somewhat. i actually think the republicans looked at the fiscal cliff, they passed the senate bill, said it is up to you. they basically blinked and said we don't want to go over the cliff. so they know they don't really have it will them to want to default on the debt ceiling. the landscape is different from 2011, yes, they're still nutty and responding to that calculus. i don't think they're quite as credible in terms of actually causing a default. and take what? social security and medicare benefit cuts, that is tremendously unpopular, it would be a disaster. but also a catastrophe for the republican party. >> and this comes at a moment where they're being criticized from kind of all sides. i want to listen to something colin powell said yesterday about their identity problem. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i am still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do right now, take a hard look at itself. the country i
of the president's second term agenda will be easy with the republicans in congress. take texas congressman steve stockman. he replaced ron paul and is making noise about impeaching the president. it's his second go around in congress. in '94 he was considered far to the right. now he fits in with some of these people. it says a lot how far they have come. >>> finally let me finish with a need for republicans again to choose sides. the wild bunch or the posse? this is "hardball," the place for politics.

evaluate if your idea has the potential to actually make money? steve blank is a retired entrepreneurial and lecturer at stanford university and author of the book "the start-up owner's manual, the step-by-step guide for building a great company." great to see you, steve. >> glad to be here. thanks very much. >> okay. so you are starting a business or you have an idea. what's the first thing you need to do to decide, okay, this is a viable idea or not. >> the first thing you need to do is realize all your passion and energy has made you start on day one of faith-based enterprise. even though you think it's a rationale business, on day one, all you have is your passion. and your job is to turn that faith, that is your assumptions, about everything you think you would believe about customers and markets and pricing into facts and we kind of now say there are no facts inside your building or office, so get the heck outside. and the whole idea is, we believe you need to get outside your office and test some of your key assumptions about your business. >> yeah. i always talk about this. don't
" steve. will the gop once again play the role of dr. no? this version of the action-packed thriller would not involve threatening the launch of a u.s. spaceship wan atomic powered radio beam. instead, the victim would be the united states economy and the potentially disastrous impact of failing to raise the debt ceiling brsh according to speaker boehner, the ends justify the means. in a statement yesterday, boehner asserted the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. it was a response to this stern warning from the president on monday. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> if the tenor of the president's last press conference of his first term is any indication about what he expects in his second term, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to
point out how hard this is going to be to get through congress. but representative steve stockton of texas appeared on fox news talking about impeachment if the president tries to push this forward. take a listen. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. using children reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> alice, i want to get your reaction to this. we have had presidents in the past use executive orders to push through gun control legislation, whether it was bush 41 or bill clinton. no one then talked about impeachment for those presidencies. why does the right have to go to such language based on the fact that we're looking at a massacre at an elementary school? how come the right doesn't want to talk logically about what can be done? >> well, i think that language is a little harsh but the truth is there's a reason why the president's going to be flanked with small children at his press conference today, as he begins his p.r. campaign, and why he's talking about using executive action on this issue when it comes to gun control, because he
, steve ballmer and larry paige respectively, they're one good night's sleep away from getting this right. microsoft has the products it needs to make itself successful. they're just doing the wrong things. the way i look at this is that the ones who have the upside surprise opportunity are microsoft and google. because the potential is totally there and they're very smart people with lots of resources. >> rose: and lots of money. >> and every incentive to get this right. if microsoft does nothing you can see what's going onith p.c.s. that business is very profitable. >> rose: would it have been different if bill gates had been running microsoft? >> i have no idea. i doubt it. to me i think they got there the honest way, through hard work. there was a professor at harvard named clayton christenson who wrote a book -- >> rose: oh, yes. >> he wrote the greatest business book i've ever read and the basic premise is that if you are supremely successful it's hard to aboon don the things that made you successful and that's all we're seeing at microsoft. windows made them what they are. and it's

analyst steve ratner. >> always a financier. >> and margaret karlton is back with us. let's start with the top story. president obama begins his second term and no longer in a free fall. the employment rate was back to where it was when he took off at 7.8% and the dow jones up 5,000 points compared to 2009. also up, way up, the national debt. ballooning for $10 trillion in his first inauguration to $16 trillion now. yesterday on "meet the press," former senior adviser david axelrod said growing the economy will continue to be a priority for this administration. >> a larger priority is how do you create an economy in which the american dream and it's fresh approximate people feel like they can get ahead. that's about education and researching development and controlling our energy. all of these are part of the equation. >> president obama has outlined debt reduction as a top priority and high on the list is immigration reform and developing renewable energy and perhaps the most urgent for the president is gun control. why don't we stop there. >> mark carlson, we have been talking a
